Alana travelled north for the first time at the age of eleven, taking in the vast Arctic landscape, abundant wildlife, and welcoming communities. Since then Alana has been on the water for most of her life!
Alana joined the family business after completing her Bachelor of Social Work degree in 2007. In the office, Alana manages the Operations department and thoroughly enjoys the logistics of making an expedition come together. Most importantly, Alana loves working alongside her family and larger team.
Armed with a passion for exploration and community engagement, Alana is dedicated to a sustainable tourism experience. She strives to collaborate with all contributors to foster an experience for passengers and communities that is exciting and meaningful. Alana strongly believes tourism celebrates the exchange of cross-cultural knowledge, as both passengers and hosts are able to learn about each other through the sharing of stories, traditions, language, dance, music, and—of course her favorite—food.
Alana sat on the Board of Directors as the Cruise Sector Representative at Nunavut Tourism for two years and continues to actively promote travel in her home country. She is also an active member of the AECO Board of Directors. When Alana isn’t on the water, she lives in Port Credit with her family!
